  • With very good attention from the staff of the Museum and a playful and educational proposal is an essential visit for visitors and residents. Children certainly have a wonderful discovery place.

  • It is a great plan to spend a fun day with family. I have 2 children, 2 and 6 years and both passed it is big. They do not stop to learn and play, even small enjoying games/inventions that were at its disposal. An extraordinary way to learn playing and show that science is interante and very funny. We have been 3 times and we've never finished to see the complete exhibition. It always surprises us and we are going to close the Museum wanting more. An extraordinary way to enjoy in family. We all learn and enjoy, children and adults. Do not miss to visit it.

  • We found this place from other reviews and it was totally worth it. It seemed to only cost €6 per person and this came with tickets to the planetarium , a ride on the robotcoaster and a 3D film. Defin...  more »

  • Climb in the cockpit of a real jet fighter, see what quarters are like on the International Space Station, learn about engines, rockets, renewables, remarkable animals and more! A great place for families with everything available in English as well as Spanish (with the exception of the planetarium voiceover), if you love STEM you have to visit.
  • Perfect for the whole family, an entry ticket valid the whole day so you can come and go as you please, there really is something for everyone here and despite it being relatively small it kept us entertained most of the day. There is a planetarium with a show in English and we watched two 3D films in English, and had a ride on the robotic arm thing which can be set to anything between gentle and wild. Highly recommend this museum.
  • A lot of interactive exhibits and everything is included in the entrance fee. The robocoaster is extremely fun and the staff very friendly. Only negative impression were that a couple of exhibits were not working properly.
  • Great place for the smaller children - especially because you could touch and try everything. Price and experience is compareable..
  • Interesting exhibition mainly about physics in work, definitely worth the price. Only negative is the broken exhibition item's in a few place
